Autumn is upon us, and it’s about to get spooky. Halloween offers a lot of opportunities for businesses of all varieties to attract new customers with holiday themed events, promotions, and fun ways to change pace.

Throw a Costume Party
This is easy and obvious, and may already be in the works for your business. But just because it’s something easy, doesn’t detract from the fun factor! People look forward to showing off their wild side all year long. If your business has an office environment, throwing a costume party — or even a competition with fun prizes — for your employees can bring people together and increase office morale. For storefronts, offer a party for your employees! Handing out candy to children in costume is a fun way to increase foot traffic through your store, plus you get to see all the cute little astronauts and princesses!
Make your business ghostly or exciting for Halloween! Carved pumpkins, ghosts, witches, and zombies can all have places in your establishment. Encourage departments to add some seasonal zest to their desks or work areas to make coming in to work each day fun. For stores, including a touch of the supernatural will entice customers to come in and check out your wares.
Don’t want to change decorations next month for Thanksgiving? By using simple autumn colors, uncarved pumpkins, and smatterings of leaves or hay, you can keep the same decorations up for longer with a seasonal fall theme.
If you have an online presence, you can decorate your website too! Creating posts focusing on the holiday can attract traffic to you. Sprucing up your design with fun imagery or widgets can encourage sharing of your site, as visitors tell their friends to check out your fun Halloween designs. Increased traffic on your site helps to promote future sales, or bring customers back when they need your services.
When you need a picture or decoration to stand out, consider using a custom frame from Simple Snap Frame. Show off a spooky painting in an LED backlit frame, or write a note about upcoming Halloween events on a custom whiteboard.
Offer Deals and Discounts
You may be holding onto your best deals for Black Friday, but Halloween can be a great time to drive increased sales with discounts! If you have a store that sells candy, creating pre-packaged bundles with a reduced price can help promote this season of treat indulgence. Otherwise, any fall merchandise you can sell should help to drive sales numbers.
Once again, don’t leave your online presence out of the fun! Offering free shipping, flash sales, or seasonal bundles can bring in new customers, and entice existing customers to make more purchases. Depending on your business, you could even run a marketing and advertising campaign based around your Halloween merchandise.
If you’re in the restaurant business, it’s time to kick the specials into high gear! Spicing up your menu with pumpkins, ghouls, and bloody skeletons can bring the fright and fun into your establishment. Here are a few ideas to spark your own smashing recipes:
- Dracula’s favorite fruit punch
- Jack-o-Lantern personal pumpkin pies
- Witch cutout cookies
- Frankenstein’s monster avocado toast
- Skeletons bursting through gravestones cakes
Choose from spooky to silly, and enjoy adding to your restaurant’s repertoire. Maybe you’ll even create a favorite that your patrons will ask for year after year! Be sure to prominently display your new specials and upcoming dishes on a sign board from Simple Snap Frame! Our eye-catching designs are beautiful and make changing specials during the day or week a breeze.
Partner With Other Businesses
If your store is located near others, band together to have a fun Halloween event for families. You can offer hayrides, scavenger hunts, costume contests, face painting, and more! Community events drive business, and encourage friendly working relationships, so collaboration in the future is made easy. If you’re a restaurant owner, you could work with a local brewery, bakery, or chocolatier to bring new combinations to your customers, and increase awareness of your brand by broadening the reach of your products.
